Written Chinese characters for the word “crisis” have two elements, representing “danger” and “opportunity.” This ancient wisdom suggests that every crisis contains an element of opportunity—a hard lesson to be remembered in these days of economic downturn and massive layoffs.
Companies faced with diminished sales are turning to quality improvement as a way to save money and avoid further layoffs, according to observers, providing opportunities not only for quality professionals, but also for companies that may survive the crisis as stronger, more competitive organizations.
In the meantime, of course, lies the “danger” part: layoffs are painful, and staff reductions leave no one feeling safe. The network of quality organizations, companies, and professionals, however, may represent the “opportunity” part of the equation.
As part of this network, PQ Systems invites those who have lost their jobs to post links to their resumes and those who can use qualified professionals to link to position postings. Use the comments section below for our blog community to see. Acting as a link between job-seekers and job-providers is one way we can lend a helping hand.
We welcome your suggestions, your input, and of course, your link if you wish to post it.
